Summary
Garnished with the details that Mark Twain gathered during his own travels up and down the lush and changeable Mississippi River, The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn provides an unparalleled glimpse into the pre-Civil War South as runaway Huck Finn - a white boy - teams up with fugitive adult slave Jim as they flee by raft on the river. Long one of the most challenged or banned books due to racist language, Twain's novel can be read as an indictment of unenlightened nineteenth-century thinking or as a heartbreaking coming-of-age novel, but what's undisputed is the novel's position as one of the most influenti8al books in American literature

Summary
Rather than be 'sivilized' by the Widow Douglas, Huckleberry Finn sets off with Jim, an escaped slave, to find freedom on the Mississippi river. With the law on their tail, they navigate a world of robbers, slave hunters and con men, and Huck must choose between what society says is right and his own burgeoning understanding of Jim's friendship and humanity, in a razor-sharp satire of the antebellum South that is one of the most important of all American novels.
